Profit Means Loss

Right, back now (but only for a little while).

All creative writing projects (yes, that includes this blog) have been put on hold for a little while after a sudden and quite unexpected glut of bottom-line work. It seems that after weeks of occupation desolation every one and their mag suddenly needs the assistance of a jobbing west-coast writer. Can't complain - it'll fund that replacement DVD player - but it does mean that there'll be no progress on the 'fun stuff' for a while.

This week I'm filling in for the news editor on one of the national gossip and entertainment mags that my wife devours each and every week. That means - to her annoyance - that I know exactly what's going to be in it a week before she does. Still, the other day she spent an hour going through pictures of strippers for her job, so at least there's an element of balance ...

Brilliant news, I miss it when you can't blog - but this is such a great reason, I'm thrilled for you xx

PS Are any of the strippers single?

Now either you've missed the point or there's something you want to tell me ...

Arf. Immediately thought of male strippers - I'm not sure what that says about me...
